Spicy Pork Parcels

Recipe created by Steve Waldron. A great appetizer which can be served hot or cold
Servings 12 Parcels


  • 1 lb Johnston's Spicy Italian Sausage casings removed
  • ¼ Cup panko or plain bread crumbs
  • 2 Tbsp parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 Jar grape/vine leaves
  • wooden skewers soaked in water for at least 30 minutes


  • Mix together all ingredients except for the grape leaves.
  • Rinse brine from grape leaves and pat dry.
  • Add about a Tablespoon of the sausage mixture to each grape leave and roll up like a burrito.
  • Double skewer 4 or 5 pork parcels and brush lightly with oil and add a little coarse salt.
  • Light half of your grill and get to 350-400 degrees.
  • Place the skewered packages over direct heat with the wooden skewers over the unlit side of the grill so they don’t burn. Cook for about 4-5 minutes per side until meat mixture feels firm. The grape leaves help prevent flare ups.
  • Remove from skewers and serve with a dipping sauce such as a Rose pasta sauce or even Ranch dressing.
